Coronavirus pandemic: BMW shuts 3 factories in China

Following the outbreak of the dreaded coronavirus, BMW, on Thursday, said it was closing three of its factories in the Chinese city of Shenyang.

The affected factories employ around 18,000 people and manufacture half a million vehicles every year.

According to a spokesman of BMW in Munich, the one-week holiday for Chinese New Year has been extended by another week until Feb. 9.

The spokesman further stated that only office workers in Shenyang would return to work from Monday, though they would be working from home.

“We cannot say exactly what will happen beyond Feb. 9,’’ the spokesman said.
